The atmosphere is very positive and exciting, very trendy, and popular

The convenience of local amenities and the variety of cuisine. The atmosphere is very positive and exciting, very trendy, and popular. This does, however, mean that there is often an influx of tourists, things can get very busy and claustrophobic. The area is suitable for children, I do not see why not. I think it may be slightly unfair to have large pets such as dogs as there is not many green areas where they could be walked.

Transport

Very good transport links into the city and other areas of London. Buses come regularly, there is also an array of Santander boris bikes as well as electric bikes offered by other providers such as uber jump bikes. These can be rented very easily through an app on the phone. There is also zipcar access never too far away. In

Community

Noise levels are hit and miss. Traffic on the road is not too bad and parking can usually be found with 1-2 minute walk from the property. The bins and recycling are collected reliably however space is shared between many houses so it will often spill over. Anti-social behaviour is sporadic throughout london.

Amenities

Lots of very nice places to eat and drink. Ottolenghi has a quaint very popular restaurant locally. There are also small independent coffee shops and bakeries, as well as major popular large chains. There is little space for nature and greenery. Many venues do offer small outside spaces, however. When this is busy it will be difficult to find seating. Quality range of shops and bars however they are on the expensive side.

I love the ease of access to transport and how I have delicious restaurants on the foot of my door.

I love the ease of access to transport and how I have delicious restaurants on the foot of my door. I dislike the constant beray traffic. the atmosphere is friendly and trendy, I suppose the overarching theme would be upmarket however this isn't overbearing. I believe the area to be very safe, I would feel happy to bring children and pets here, no concerns.

Transport

Transport links are generally quite good, it helps to be so close to Paddington railway station also. There are a good number of cyclists on the road also. Roads are wide and generally feel safe when cycling. Buses are fairly reliable and there are a few local tube stations all within walking distance.

Community

Street parking is available through the local council at a price. this is not ideal but i suppose it is to be suspected. Traffic can get very busy on the main roads. Especially at peak times and the weekend, but alas this is London. Bin collection is fairly consistent however it is often a mess by the time it is collected. There are often groups of young men hanging around streets.

Amenities

Truly a fantastic location to live. Architecture is astounding, houses and buildings are absolutely beautiful. The is the ease of access to local amenities, a wide array of shops, both food, and retail. An absolutely mouth-watering selection of eateries and restaurants.

Amenities are quite good overall in my area

I wish council tax was cheaper overall and people would be more disciplined with dumping their bins in the streets on wrong days

Transport

I have Westbourne Park station closeby but I think London transports in general is pretty poor apart from the Central Line. Hammersmith and Central lines are just not reliable and too long to wait on quay

Community

Good aspect is the nice area overall but some streets around feel unsafe, partially with council state parts. Police cars seem to pop more frequently than I wished, smell of weed now and then as well. Also someone plays saxophone loudly every now and then even later

Amenities

Amenities are quite good overall in my area. I wish we had a Boots closer (closest one is all way up to Queensway) which is 20 mn by foot. I wish we had a nice mexican restaurant closeby too, I think London s missing good mexicans, not just my area.

it feels as though residents are overlooked in favour of the tourists because of the amount of money they bring into the area.
